You are an Eidolon, set apart from the other sentients by your drive and clarity of self awareness. You wear your soul on the outside, granting you immortality and wonderous but strange abilities at the cost of being true to yourself.
You have travelled to Nitar following rumours that a shard of the Cornerstone of the world is hidden there. If true it may contain a chance to change the world and bring it at least one step closer to being saved from the encroachine Aether.
Mystic Empyrean is a brand new game that relies on several story telling systems that I have not seen before. If you enjoy open games that encourage narrative and free-form resolution within the constraints of the games mechanics this game may be for you. If you would like to focus on skill lists and hit points it probably isn't.
This particular scenario is in a world of steampunk, using the games preview adventure, mainly because of the pretty art that came with it.
